I love making these Crock Pot Herbed Almonds or Party Nuts for any kind of party. From Tapas night to a small happy hour to a baby shower to Thanksgiving dinner, I’ve made these for every type of gathering.
They’re a perfect addition to my Tapas spread that I’ve been sharing: Grilled Red Pepper and Garlic Dip, Manchego Crackers, and Crock Pot Herbed Almonds.

Looking for more great spiced nut finger food snack ideas? Be sure to check out my Apricots with almonds, Smoked garlic almonds, Mocha candied almonds, and Fried peanuts.
They’re a great appetizer or snack for people to nosh on. They’re super easy on the host because it’s all just mixed in the crock pot and stirred a couple of times. They smell amazing as they cook.
And, it’s a nice healthy alternative to some appetizers, or a healthy addition to a feast party spread.
I’ve even mixed up all the ingredients in the crock pot the night before and just left it, cold, on the counter overnight. Closer to the start of my party, I’ll turn the crock pot on so we have a nice warm appetizer with minimal work on my part the day of the event.
When the almonds have cooked and are right out of the slow cooker they’re a little soft; they crisp up after cooling a little.

Delicious herbed almonds, next time when I buy almonds I will try this recipe thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul blog hop, pinning.
These look absolutely addictive, Debi! I can’t wait to give your Crock Pot Herbed Almonds a try! Love how easy the recipe is as well. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious treat with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.
what if I only have a 7 qt or 1.5 qt crock pot (I have both – but not the size in the recipe
Chandra, I’d go with the larger crock pot. Then just keep an eye on the sauce, giving it a stir a couple times to make sure it isn’t burning at all. I’ve found that the more the sauce touches the sides of the pot, the more it’s possible to get a little bit of burned edges.
For your 1 1/2 qt slow cooker, I love making these roasted almonds: https://lifecurrentsblog.com/crock-pot-herbed-almonds/
And this Bean dip is a big hit: https://lifecurrentsblog.com/chipotle-bean-dip/
I love making these, and thought they might be fun for your smaller crock pot.
These smelled so good while they were in the crockpot… it was hard to wait for them to finish before snacking on them. Definitely keeping this handy for all of the holidays coming up!
The warm herbed almonds made a nice change from the regular bowls of nuts.
